Name: Jun Oshiro
Arcana: The Devil
Equipment: Cigarettes, a lighter, pencils, sketchpad, and a container of concealer.
Skills: Pickpocketing, picking locks, running (used to be really into athletic clubs in middle school), and various art skills (particularly good at drawing).
Personality: Jun is a very selfish, angry and turbulent adolescent. He had a good upbringing, but there was always something that unnerved him about his parents. The look in his mother’s eye when he tried to bring up his biological father, the anger in his father’s voice when he tried to push his mother about it. The jealousy Jun felt when he saw how much his mother and stepfather gave so much love and attention to his baby half-sister, than they ever gave to him. Jun grew up hiding a deep resentment to his parents that would just fester over the years.
But when he met Takeo, things became a bit more bearable. Jun adored Takeo. If there was anyone in the world who understood Jun the most, and could calm the anger brewing inside of him; it was Takeo. But in time, Jun began to grow to understand that he himself could never have friends, or relationships. He was a “bad seed.” His selfishness brought pain to Takeo, Takeo’s family and other friends, and even his own parents. Everything Jun touched; he’d end up breaking or hurting. So over the years of his high school term, Jun’s learned to just embrace this part of him that he deems the truth; that he is “the devil.” He thrives in his own vices and destructive habits, and doesn’t plan to change. He keeps his distance from people emotionally and often acts out and is abrasive just to keep folks from getting too close, but secretly desires companionship and friends.
Biography: Jun was born the bastard son of a married, wealthy businessman and his secretary mistress who genuinely believed her lover would leave his wife for her; but unfortunately for Ms. Oshiro, that was never going to happen and she found out that the hard way. Ostracized from her family and friends for the scandal of an out of wedlock child, Jun’s father at least was willing to pay for both Jun and his mother to move out of town and live somewhere far away, where the scandal wouldn’t come back to bite him. There, Ms. Orshiro managed to raise Jun and married a nice man who served as a good stepfather for Jun.
For many years, Jun grew up in this happy environment with little to no problems. He had friends, and one particularly good friend named Takeo. Jun and Takeo were thick as thieves and inseparable for most of their elementary and middle school days, and were so until the two had a big argument one day, which put a heavy strain on their relationship. Takeo started hanging out with other kids and ignoring Jun entirely. Angry and jealous, Jun sought for revenge by leaking a huge secret of Takeo’s to the entire school. Soon, Takeo became the laughing stock of his school. Nobody wanted to hang out with Takeo, and soon he became the prime target for bullies and was harassed for weeks. Jun was content with this; for if he couldn’t be friends with Takeo, then no one could. Takeo would have to come back to him, since no one else would be with him.
But this did not go as Jun planned, for Takeo instead attempted to take his own life at the top of the school’s building. Horrified, Jun just watched as his friend fell to the ground. Jun did not want this. He just wanted to be with Takeo. He just didn’t want to be alone. He never wanted any of this; but it did not matter.
Takeo ended up surviving the fall, but not without being critically injured and in a coma. Takeo’s family was in an uproar and blame fell to Jun, his most trusted friend who betrayed him. Takeo’s family threatened to pursuit legal action, but the school managed to talk them out of it, as long as Jun was transferred elsewhere and moved out of town. Jun’s parents quickly agreed to the deal and moved to a new town as soon as they could. Things were going to be better. Jun was in a whole new town, it was a blank slate and he could start over with no scandal to follow him. It was all going to be okay and back to normal.
Or, it should’ve been, but Jun began to fall into some bad crowds, and started heading down the path of delinquency. Smoking, skipping school, sneaking out at night, picking fights with other students, vandalism, arson…it began getting worse and worse over the years. Every night Jun came home at 3 in the morning, his mother would just break down in tears. Jun and his stepfather would get into fights and in some cases it would get physical. Eventually, it got to a point where his mother had to resort to calling Jun’s biological father, and beg him for help.
His father worked out a deal with Jun’s aunt and uncle (on his mother’s side) in the city of Shikatsu, which he’d pay them to watch Jun and deal with his antics for his remaining high school term. Jun’s father also pulled some strings to have Jun accepted in Uchima Senior High. Jun was not happy about the move, especially since he wasn’t allowed a voice in the decision, and has since then been continuing his antics. His aunt and uncle don’t seem to care as long as they don’t have to get involved if he gets caught, which has been fine with him. Jun spends most of his time out at night in the streets of Shikatsu, or smoking behind the school after hours.
Angry delinquent son has been delivered. Let me know if there are any issues.
